Detroit Lions:

The Detroit Lions currently hold the longest active playoff drought in the NFC, with their last postseason appearance taking place in 2016. However, with Dan Campbell entering his third season as Detroit’s head coach, the Lions are the favorites to win the NFC North.

QB Jared Goff finished last season with a 99.3 passer rating and a total of 29 passing touchdowns—his best numbers since 2018—under the leadership of first-year offensive coordinator Ben Johnson. The Lions’ offense is expected to continue to improve under Johnson’s leadership in year two.

Kansas City Chiefs:

After picking up their second Super Bowl title in the last 4 years with a 38-35 victory over the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs look to become the first team to earn back-to-back Super Bowl titles since the 2003-04 Patriots.

Mahomes led the league with a career high of 5,250 passing yards last season and had an NFL-high of 41 touchdown passes, en route to claiming his second career MVP. Since becoming the starting QB ahead of the 2018 season, Mahomes’ magic has helped Kansas City reach the AFC Championship for the last 5 straight seasons.
